    Morning all:

    Yes, not good from the start.
    Haven't seen any details about how it happened, could be they failed to show up at muster or actually seen go overboard either accidentally or purposely.
    Like already mentioned, if they failed to show up at muster and were assumed overboard, they could still be hiding on the ship somewhere, those things are BIG!

    Just read that also Ken, he's lucky to be alive, darn hunting dogs just can't keep their paws off guns! :rolleyes:
    A loaded gun and a dog running around in the back of a truck where it's at IMO would not be a good combination, he found that out the hard way!

    After coding twice, I would be doing some soul searching in an effort to understand my mission on this earth.

    I faced similar thoughts after having a heart attack at the age of 42 and having to be zapped twice with paddles. Coronary by pass surgery with five grafts later, I knew that I needed to change my priorities and the way I was living.

    Happy to say 32 years later I am focused on being the best person I can be and sharing the Good News with others.

    Second chances are good!

    :thumbsup:Glad you are enjoying life and sharing. Too many folks think it will never happen to them until ...it DOES and then it's too late. Every day is a gift and should be appreciated.

    Good for you.
    Having had a heart attack myself ... I am sure more changed than just sharing the good news.
    I had to change my diet drastically.

    I'm in South East PA and there has been minor flooding but nothing severe Gary. I just hope the others are high and dry. Just wish the rain would take a hiatus and let things dry out a little.

    We just got brushed by a severe thunderstorm that lasted about 20 min., don't think anything too major happened in our area.

    While on our road trip we heard that 6 inches fell at our place in one hour.
    Lots of minor damage. Nothing major.
    Steep where we live, so it all goes down hill, fast.

    Morning Cool Old Dudes. :)

    Couple weeks ago, during our heatwave, this mooseman was tempted to do that every morning when I watered the lawn. ;)

    :annoyed: Looks like they are calling for severe weather again this afternoon. They have warnings out for Allentown which is about 20mi. South of me, for those of you in SE Pa., stay safe.
